Drunken / Beer Can Chicken and Dutch's Wicked Beans w/ QVIEW

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

Greetings 'Yall.  Last night I decided to see if I could get a chicken on my drum with the flat lid I currently have... and it BARELY worked... in fact it smushed the top a little but it cooked just fine!  I'm in the process of tracking down a dome lid, so in a few weeks this shouldn't be a problem anymore! Thanks, enjoy!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here is the yard bird after it was massaged with EVOO and rubbed with Tony C's and Cavenders.  This was my first time stuffing and onion in the neck, it worked great!

 

I also ran into the problem of not having any canned beers, so I used a stainless veggie can we cleaned and saved from a few nights ago, filled it with beer, some spice and a couple thai peppers and plopped that chicken right on it!

Here is the bird out of the bath.  It cooked between 250-300 for about 2.5 hours with Peach wood straight from the great state of South Carolina.

It was VERY tender, and easy to pull.  In a bowl with the onion from the neck-hole chopped up.

Lastly, and the most exciting part for me... On the plate with some of Dutch's  wicked beans (although this was my first time making them, and they didnt seem to wicked, I may only seed 1 jap and use more mustard powder) a half a tater (also from smoker), and a big ole sammie with lots of pulled chicken, bbq sauce and topped with some slaw. mmmmm.

Hope 'yall enjoyed.  Have a great weekend!

That looks GREAT !

Beautiful color on that bird !

 

One thing I gotta tell ya though;

Once you cut the bird's head off and stuff an onion in the neck hole, it doesn't matter how much EVOO you massage into her, she won't come back to life! 

 

 

Thanks for showing,

Bear

Bearcarver, those Carolina games were undeniably some good times (in my younger, single days)! Carolina Girls love their Gamecocks! Of course, if PETA gets their way, game days just won't be the same. PETA wants USC to do away with the "Gamecock" name . Fighting gamecocks are cruel and all ya know. I bet PETA loves this site.... just sayin. Go Cocks!!!

Definitely going to depend on who you ask.  The bird you are looking at above wasnt brined... but we just pull the chicken for sammies.  If you wanted to slice it may be easier to brine it first.
